2004 CLK 240 Coupe
Greg. I agree that the OP was only talking about changing the fuel filter - which had possibly been changed before. However, I would have thought that if you were going into that area with the clamps, etc, you would do both pump and filter at the same time. The filter is a 75k mile service, isn't it?Key: filter, not pump...no banjo bolt issue, just the funky spring clamps on the hoses.
I did see a fuel filter DIY in the W210 stickies, but not one for a fuel pump, so maybe it will be useful.
